Hobos That Pass In The Night by Jack London


Published October 14, 2006


This is an autobiographical story by London from his book "The Road". It tells the hard reality of being dragged from trains, freezing in the wind while hanging between cars, and of being run out of towns by the local cops. It also tells of the signs carved into railroad water tanks that served as a menu regarding a hobo's chances if he begged for money or food in that town or a place to kip. As if the locals and railroad bulls weren't bad enough, of being forced on pain of a bad beating to tell a really really good story to a boxcar full of hobos that they hadn't heard before.
